My wife and I went here after our original plans had to change due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though a few of their interactive exhibits were closed in compliance with CDC guidelines, there was still plenty to see and do. The staff members I interacted with were pleasant and knowledgeable about the fish and animals in their care.

My wife and I visited for the first time today. What a great aquarium! I've never seen arawanas in an aquarium before. A lot if great exhibits including a tunnel a visitor walks through while fish swim overhead. I really loved the pot bellied sea horses. The Manta track was really cool, as was a flowing tank full of fish that, when you held your hand over them, they all stopped, looking for a handout! A really great place.

This small aquarium works VERY hard, They have some excellent exhibits, a positive commitment to the health of the ocean environment, and seem to be working very hard to keep their specimens happy and healthy. It is sad that an utterly dismal failure of a suburban shopping mall is the host.

This aquarium is small. If you're expecting the New England Aquarium in Boston, this isn't it. It only took about an hour to see it all, but our 6 year old granddaughter enjoyed it. FYI, it's located within the Via Port Rotterdam, a small mall. VIA Aquarium does have stingray feedings at noon & 4 pm. Heads up though that a child needs to be 4 feet tall to participate in this activity. Some days, they also offer a reptile program which costs an extra $2 per person. While it is a bit expensive for an hour adventure, it was a fun activity & we weren't sorry that we went.
